's a crude film. they know it has nothing to do with the united states government. it is an excuse. one intelligence person told me, if you scratch the surface, and if you gave every street vendor from street vendor to prime minister in that region a chance to throw a rock at the u.s. embassy, they would. so this is their excuse. >> look at what's happening in afghanistan 11 years later. >> and look what's happening in afghanistan. and is it just me? willie, is it just me, or is it -- we have the grave concern about the tragedy that happened to the ambassador and our people that have served so proudly for, you know, for the state department who were killed. and yet this weekend, more u.s. troops in afghanistan gunned down by our supposed allies. this happens every day. this happens every day. and yes, our u.s. ambassador being killed is just absolutely horrific. but every single day, young american men and women are gunned down in afghanistan. >> 51 of them this year on insider attacks. 51 nato troops including many americans this year. >> nobody's talking about it. >> to your point exa
to win and distance themselves from this guy who is, as i say, plainly not fit to be in the united states senate, given some of his views. but it is possible, as jim vandehei said, it's possible he could win this race. and it's clear that a lot of republicans and the republican establishment now looking at the math are thinking about coming back in. i think the republican senatorial committee is very likely to put money into this race. i think the polls will tighten. as horrific as it will be to many people not just on the left but in the middle of the electorate, i think there's a reasonable chance he could win this race. >> not only do i agree with that, take a look, joe, at what roy blunt did. he is moving up in leadership, and he came out and supported akin yesterday. so that is -- >> the senator from michigan. >> yeah, that's the leading indicator. that tells you that the republican committee is going to go full in, and they see this as their way to regain control, and it's all about regaining control. and i can tell you that some of the very people now supporting him are republicans
? >> the united states military says most joint operations with the americans and afghan soldiers are going to be suspended until further notice. and mika, this is horrifying when you look at the fact that u.s. policy makers have been justifying continuing this war in afghanistan based on this -- this -- this lie that we're going to be able to train them and help these people who are shooting and killing our troops, help them run the country. >> the longest war and for the longest time no one who is in charge or who knows about these issues can tell us what winning means. the move comes amid an alarming string of insider attacks. the latest on sunday that left four american soldiers dead. yesterday, nato announced it was also scaling back joint operations with afghan security forces. the joint combat patrols are seen as a critical part of the u.s. plan to withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014. and just a few hours ago, in the capital of kabul, nine people were killed when a suicide bomb rammed a car packed with explosives into to a mini bus believed to be carrying foreign workers.
. teddy kennedy had that. clinton has that. i think that in time, the president of the united states, barack obama, is acquiring it as well. there was at the end of his speech where he began to warm, to warm to it. there was a kind of passion that built and i thought that's the direction he has to go. that will be his authenticity. >> i agree with you. there was a lot of talk of it being a workmanlike speech but it ended with a huge lift. we will talk more about the performances on display at the dnc last week on "now." james lipton gave us his assessment of governor romney's big speech at the rnc. >> i would say that he has certainly improved, without question. he was more confident. he was more assertive. he was more relaxed. and let us now ask why. he was preaching to the converted. he was, as we say, preaching to the choir. >> will any of the convention performances inform campaign dynamics and the race towards november? we will have more with james lipton, next. this country was built by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. compa
of the united states. >> but mistakes aside does the relationship between governor romney and his running mate now reside at camp awkward? we will look at the struggle to let ryan be ryan and romney's surrogate problem next on "now." ally bank. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wires! uhhh.

for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation." in a late-night news conference, romney responded. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way, but it's a message which i'm going to carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because, frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. and therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. >> let me britain in anne kornblut for "the washington post" and a politics reporter for roll call. good to see both of you. let me play reaction across t
. this is really the great rcrisi facing america at the moment. you can't run for president of the united states using the kind of language that elizabeth warren used last night that is so clearly an attack on corporations and the corporate culture. that's just not what america is. this is not a socialist country. it's not a social democratic countku count country. that doesn't wash for somebody running for president in the country. if you look at what he's talking about in terms of the middle clar class he uses the middle class as his litmus speech in everything he poses. >> to go back to matt bai's point, there's a real distinction between a bill clinton democrat and elizabeth warren democrat. bill clinton never met a big company ceo he didn't love. governor of arkansas he courted business to come in. bob ruben as treasury secretary, these guys were titans of wall street. he disa approves of elizabeth's rhetoric on this, disapproved when president obama has called the people fat cats. the president has charted this weird middle course. he's passed a financial reform bill that did not have very
had the look of a shotgun marriage. is that any reason to make some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention
of president obama. let's listen. >> it began with a perfect aaa credit rating for the united states. it ends with a downgraded america. >> the reason the country's debt rating was downgraded is everyone who watches this program and others on msnbc and read the newspapers know, it had a lot to do with the republican congress playing a dangerous game of chicken over the debt, refusing to compromise. here is what he said about the simpson-bowles debt commission. this is again paul ryan skating around the truth. >> he created a new bipartisan debt commission. they came back with an urgent report. he thanked them, sent them on their way, and then did exactly nothing. >> "they, they," the commission. he was on the commission. the fact he leaves out is he actually sat on the commission. paul ryan, that guy there, and voted against his final urgent report and many believed helped bring it all down despite dick durbin voting for it. here's a guy who's able to go in front of the national audience debuting himself and presents himself as someone who isn't at all responsible for the failure of simpson-b
the president of the united states or vice president biden. but they have the benefit of having some of the greatest speakers, arguably, in the history of politics, bill clinton, president obama, you could add michele obama to that list now. >> oh, my gosh. the reaction from that speech has been -- i mean i have heard from people from all walks of life who were completely moved by that speech and brought to tears. i don't even think they expected it to be that good. she was excellent. >> yeah. >> it was her execution that just brought it home. >> her speech was tough. she delivered it well. >> hours before last night's big speeches there was an awkward and unexpected moment on the convention floor, amid criticism from mitt romney, and other top republicans, democrats held a last-minute vote to reinsert the word "god" into the party platform and to declare jerusalem the capital of israel. >> the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed say no. >> in the opinion of the -- let me do that again. all of those
and shirra toblitz. why is this guy still able to walk before a camera and say, i want to be a united states senator? >> well, first of all, i love the idea that he has a democratic woman in his campaign photo there, because, of course, democrats are the one most enthusiastic about him remaining in the race. because he's the one likeliest to hand the seat right back to them. you know, this is maybe the luckiest man alive, because he had this horrible scandal, looked like he was going down, then the conventions came. and now mitt romney's in trouble. that's the bigger distraction for the republicans than what's happening in missouri. all eyes are off him. the democrats are laying low. they don't want to bring this thing up again, until they hit the 25th, when he has to stay on >> well, he's still in the race, because he won the primary. republicans had other choices in the primary. it was a three-way race, and he won it. and he can continue to stay on the ballot. the official date is the 25th. that's tuesday, as you mentioned. but, actually, it might be a few days earlier than that, because o
barry goldwater was saying at the time, i'd like to cut off the eastern end of the united states, not 47%, but a big chunk of it. here is what barry goldwater said which is similar to what romney said, let's get rid of the part of the country we don't like. >> in a saturday evening post article dated august 31st, 1963, barry goldwater said, sometimes i think this country would be better off if we could just saw off the eastern seaboard and let it float out to sea. can a man who makes statements like this be expected to serve all the people justly and fairly? >> well, looks like governor romney would like to saw off 47% of the country. john hilman, don't you like the voice of that old tv commercial? that's authoritative. >> totally awesome. look, i think that, you know, it's hard for us to criticize governor romney. last week we were saying, you know, it's terrible this thing he said, earlier this week, it's terrible this thing he said, you need to be the president of all americans. for him to try to right that ship and apologize, although he didn't come out and own it in quite the way i
the office of president of the united states would so dismiss all of the people he is sworn to serve if he should be fortunate, which certainly i believe he won't, to succeed in this quest. it is really disheartening to hear him say that. >> congressman, you worked alongside dr. edward zeigler who, of course, developed the highly effective head start program. i had the great privilege of interviewing dr. zeigler. that has been so crucial in helping children in challenging family circumstances, but given mr. romney's contempt for half the population, i guess it's no surprise that his running mate, paul ryan, his running mate's budget would slash head start to pieces. >> it would slash head start. it slashes college education and tuition. it slashes medicaid as well, which also hurts the very seniors also that they claim they're going to protect. this cynical nature of this has had even the bishops joining with the nuns and saying that this is an immoral budget that he has put forward because of how it decimates the poorest amongst us. i mean, dr. zeigler would be amazed by all of this, and
to walk before a camera and say i want to be a united states senator? >> first of all, i love the idea he has democratic woman in his campaign photo there because, of course. >> democrats are the one most enthusiastic about him remaining in the race because he is the one likeliest to hand the seat right back to them. you know this is maybe the luckiest man alive because he had this horrible scandal, looked like he was going down, then the conventions came and now mitt romney's in trouble. you know what that is the biggest distraction for the republicans than what's happening in missouri. all eyes are off him you can the democrats are laying low, they don't want to bring this thing up again until they hit 295th when he has to stay on the ballot, then all kinds of she will going to be unleashed on him. >> sure. just to remind everybody this is a guy who speaks in a way so condescending toward women even he seems to be suggesting a woman who has to go through the hell of reporting not only going through a rape, which has been in the past a capital crime, but then has to report it to the poli
to look at this person and defeat her. >> how many people in the congress of the united states are anti-american? you've already suspected barack obama. is he alone or are there others? how many do you suspect as being unamerican? >> what i would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose. i wish she would. i wish the american media would take a great look at the view of the people in congress and find out if they are pro america or anti-america. i think people would love to see an expo say like that. >> mr. graves, i hate to say that i have not conducted a joe mccarthy probe here of the loyalty of the democratic members of congress. what do you make of having an owe point nent like that? >> pris, it all started on your channel and on your show. she keeps going. she's a gift that keeps going. she's actually come after me. she likes to tread on fear and separation. that's her whole mantra. and i think it's getting old. >> let's take a look at mr. joe walsh in illinois and find out how he's going after tammy duckworth. >> i understand something about john mccain. his politi
and defeat her. how many people in the congress of the united states do you think are anti-american? you've already suspected barack obama. is he alone? are there others? how many do you suspect of your colleagues as being anti-american? >> what i would say, what i would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. i wish they would. i wish the american media would take a great look at the views of the people in congress and find out, are they pro-america or anti-america? i think people would be -- would love to see an expose like that. >> well, mr. graves, i hate to admit, i shirked on that response but have not conducted a joe mccarthy-style probe in my small role here of the loyalty of the democratic members of congress. what do you make of having an opponent like that? what would you make hay out of that crazy comment? >> krirchris, i'll tell you, it started on your channel and show, she keeps going. she keeps going. she'ses actually coming after me. she likes to tread on fear and separation. that's her whole mantra. and i think it's getting old. >> okay
